Classic contemporary style is fresh, elegant, and timeless. It offers flexibility in that pieces can often be swapped, repositioned, or restyled for a new look. Here are six classic contemporary design directions for your home, courtesy of GlobeWest.

Celebrating the Diversity of the Landscape

This classic contemporary design direction draws inspiration from the diverse landscapes found in our own backyards. It combines natural elements, such as stones and textured fabrics, with soft earthy neutrals. The softened edges and gentle curvature provide clarity through pared-back design. Tones of putty, soft moss, washed terracotta, barley, dusty rose, and latte create a sense of tranquility. Textures are simplified with matte marble finishes and painted timber, while woven finishes add tactility.

Continued Focus on Personal Well-being

This design direction puts a contemporary spin on traditional joinery and circular forms, channeling bygone elements. Warm neutrals anchor this palette, with warming tones of rust, clay, and tan dancing with toffee, soft tide, and apricot reminiscent of sun-splashed days. Eye-catching tactility creates intrigue through brown vein marble, soft-to-touch leather, rattan, and warm grained timbers.

Storytelling and Classicism

The Narrative of Nature design direction brings a tactile space filled with layered neutrals and natural fibers. It exudes comfortable, livable elegance. Wave-like forms create a meditative calm, while oversized, slouchy seating blends with crisp stone pieces and matte ceramic finishes for simplified sophistication. Nature presents in cypress green and sage, paired with a neutral palette of chalk, pebble, and sand. Materials like natural linen, oak, travertine, and woven seagrass embody the coast and country.

Escaping Within Our Own Homes

Absence & Presence, a cooler palette, includes the richness and sophistication of black―a classic contemporary staple. A sense of presence is met in etch detailing and carved channelling, while sculptural shaping and exaggerated curves imbue stillness. Moody grey hues, bluestone, and gunmetal mix with dark oaks and snow bouclé to soothe the senses. The smooth materiality of classic marble sits beside monolithic forms, cut pile rugs, and textural weaves.

Classic Ancestry

Whether you create a calming space or a moodier one, Classic Ancestry is the design direction for you. The lines are sculpted, offering a nod to the past while working for the present and future. Classic silhouettes take hold with fluted forms, art deco influence, and channelling with contemporary elements at the helm. A compound of light and dark finishes adds allure in a palette of fawn, clay, and antique brass. A sophisticated curation emerges combining Carrera marble, tweed, and refined detailing.

A Good Time Home

Red-infused tones bring warmth and energy to this design direction. A fusion of geometric shapes, modern, and contemporary forms evokes optimism and expression. Softened hues and dark tones blend with a warming palette of merlot, cinnamon, and burgundy. A transformative mix of colored velvets, cosmic and green vein marble, and red travertine emerges.
